Support Atlanta Track Club's Mission
Atlanta Track Club relies on its members, volunteers and
supporters to create a healthier, more active Atlanta and to improve the entire
city's fitness and wellness. Whether you want to become a member, volunteer at
one of our events, or donate to further the Club's mission, we hope you get involved and support our vision.
As the city's largest running and walking organization, the Club is a centerpiece of Running City USA, focused on improving accessibility, health literacy and fitness in and around Atlanta. In recent years, the Club's work has included:
-The revitalization of Cheney Stadium in Summerhill, the Olympic training facility from the 1996 Olympic Games
-Partnering with Atlanta Public Schools to improve access for the city's students to track & field and cross country
-Donation of the 800m Active Oval gravel track, 14th St. gates and water fountains to Piedmont Park
And we're Building it to Last.
Here's what we're planning in Atlanta
Through world-class track & field facilities and a focus on community development, the Club will build the spaces needed to make the sport accessible to all who seek to get active. Working alongside some of the city's key organizations, the Club looks to develop programs for every part of the runner life-cycle.
From youth to adults, the Club will expand its programming to improve fitness and health literacy in Atlanta. Specifically, the Club will combat the childhood obesity epidemic through expansion of its Kilometer Kids program throughout the state of Georgia and to turn Atlanta Public Schools into a top-flight running program.
Building Running City USA depends not just on the Club, but on the systems, trails, greenways and parks that provide a safe, inclusive space for runners of all ages to develop and learn. The Club is committed to funding and growing these spaces to create a more connected city in which everyone is united by fitness.
As we build the future of Running City USA, we need your help. However you can support the Club's mission, we look forward to you taking the next step and getting involved.
